There are always permanent scars following this procedure. These scars are normally quite conspicuous early after surgery and are visible for an indefinite period of time. Delayed healing and drainage may occur along the margins of the incisions. The breasts may not be exactly the same size or shape. Every attempt will be made to position the nipples evenly; however, it is not always possible to make them exactly even. No guarantee as to size, shape or brassiere size has been made. Sensation in the nipple or other parts of the breasts can be altered temporarily or permanently lost in some cases.
